Title: Proration at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Author(s): Harold S. Thomas (2)


Geology and petroleum engineering have been important factors in the history of proration at Oklahoma City. Orders and ordinances by State and City have been issued to curtail production and operations only after exhaustive geological testimony. Geologists have presented to the Corporation Commission their ideas concerning the probable extent of the field, ultimate recovery, producing horizons, zoning according to geological formations, effect of proration on the oil sands, gas-oil ratios, water encroachment, migration of oil and gas, drainage areas, gas reserves, and other pertinent fact-finding testimony on which the Commission has since based its proration requirements.
